the presidential, this is a heavily democratic district in illinois that used to be represented by jesse jackson jr. until he resigned. today in the primary to replace him, gun reform played a huge role in the race. we're going to have results and whatever explanation we have got about those results coming up on the show this hour. and as that illinois congressional election becomes sort of a test case for the democratic party's newfound muscularity and confidence on the issue of gun policy, well, today in washington, vice president biden kept up his very high profile schedule on this issue. the vice president taking this meeting today with a group of really not the usual suspects on the gun issue. and also today, one key legislator announced a really important decision about what is going to happen now on the gun issue. we're going to be getting to that. alaska, don't wet your pants. something is going to happen on guns. try to hold it together. >>> furthermore today in washington, the collapse of one of the weirdest d.c. republican tantrums in this era in which we have a lot of weird d.c. republi

peterson, robert blake, phil specter, michael jackson, o.j. simpson, martha stewart. even the lindbergh baby kidnapping. why do they go to trial? it's because to get the real truth in a case like this, really get the truth, you need a courtroom. you need witnesses sworn. you need evidence, et cetera. and they tend to go that way. just looking at history, it seems to me we may well have a trial with oscar pistorius. the second part of it is we have to assume with a plea bargain if he will be offered a deal he can live with and i think based on the evidence and based on the improbabilities in his statement as the judge said, he may not get the offer he wants. >> one thing that all those cases she mentioned have in common is they were all within the united states of america. in south africa, you have a case that mark thatcher, prime minister thatcher's son, who was accused of fomenting a revolution abroad, got a very sweet plea bargain deal. the fact that it's a high profile case alone doesn't prevent a plea bargain from taking place. look, i think we don't know today the most important ev
